Leslie Lockhart is an impressionist painter located in a historic neighborhood in Huntsville, Alabama. Growing up in South Carolina, Leslie Lockhart developed a love of art at an early age. Although she experimented with a variety of mediums, Leslie continually returned to painting. Her mother was a constant source of encouragement- always giving her artwork to “lucky?” friends and family. But instead of pursuing a degree in art, Leslie chose to study interior design in Atlanta to develop her love of architecture and design. Following college graduation, she worked for large design and architectural firms in Atlanta and Winston-Salem, NC. Once she and her husband, Drew, had children, Leslie took some time off to be home with their boys. During those years at home, art was always a hobby. It quickly became something more after their family relocated to Huntsville, Alabama. Leslie began to study with a variety of well known, established artists across the country and later decided to reenter the workforce as a professional artist. She can be found in her studio in historic downtown Huntsville. Her work is shown at The Golden Griffin and Brooks and Collier in Huntsville; Paul LeQuire and Company in Nashville; The Square Cupboard in Mississippi and Bird in the Hand in Salado, Texas.
